It’s A Dark Day

Hosni Mubarak and co. have been acquitted from the killing of protestors and the issuance of a power vacuum that sought to destabilize the country to discredit the 2011 uprising. Mubarak was Egypt’s fourth president and ruled from 1981 to 2011-a tenure only exceeded by Mohammed Ali (1805-1848), the founder of modern Egypt. My Facebook feed is full of lament, cynicism, and rage. I don’t think anyone has any words for how this feels. Whether the Ferguson decision in the States, of the Mubarak trial in Egypt–it truly feels like one system under God, with no liberty or justice for anyone.
